Furthermore, the patient should show at least one clinical indicator of ischemia. Increased troponin levels have consistently been shown to be associated with a higher risk of adverse events in patients with stable CHD [73–76]. Recently, high-sensitivity assays for cTnT (hs-cTnT) and cTnI (hs-cTnI) have been developed; the limit of detection of these assays can be 10-fold lower than that of conventional assays [76].

Myocardial ischemia, necrosis, and subsequent remodeling are accompanied by the release of specific markers into the serum (Fig. 2) [9]. Currently, specific serum biomarkers of cardiovascular risk are being sought. As a general rule, new biomarkers for risk prediction need to be biologically plausible and measurable [1]. In addition, measurements for these biomarkers should be reproducible and should show a strong and graded relationship to the disease [1]. In the clinical setting, the laboratory tests for these biomarkers should be accurate and precise and should show low or modest variability [10].
